World Asthma Day is an annual event organized by the Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA) to improve asthma awareness and care around the world. World Asthma Day 2013 took place on Tuesday, May 7, 2013 around the theme "You Can Control Your Asthma." This year GINA also introduced a sub-theme, "It's Time to Control Asthma," encouraging activity organizers around the world to complete the sentence, "It's Time to..." as relevant to their event and target audience.



    World TB Day, falling on March 24th each year, is designed to build public awareness that tuberculosis today remains an epidemic in much of the world, causing the deaths of nearly one-and-a-half million people each year, mostly in developing countries.
